Peanut Butter Jelly Brownie

Brownies are so easy to make and kids (and bigger kids) love it. Pair it with some Vanilla Icecream and it is a perfect treat! When our Groovy Gourmets decided to make a Brownie with a difference, I wanted to try adding some Strawberry Jam to it.. Well, the idea extended to making a Peanut Butter Jelly Brownie.

Who does not like Peanut Butter Jelly Sandwich? Convert your childhood love into a super easy Brownie.

I have adapted my Triple Chocote Brownie to make this Low Fat Healthy Brownies!

Dry Ingredients
All Purpose Flour 130 gms (1 cup)
Cocoa Powder 23 gms (1/4 cup)
Castor Sugar 90 gms (1/3 c + 2 tbsp)
Baking Powder 1 tsp
Baking Soda 1/4 tsp
Salt 1/4 tsp

Wet Ingredients
Warm Milk 1/3 cup + 2 tsp of coffee (Soy Milk for Vegan)
Yogurt 1/2 cup (Soy Yoghurt for Vegan)
Oil 1/4 cup
Vanilla Extract 1 tsp


Peanut Butter 3 tbsp
Strawberry Jam 3 tbsp

Method of Preparation

1. Brush a 8 * 8 square baking pan with a little oil and line it with Parchment Paper (such that a bit of paper hangs out on two sides of the pan). This will help in easily taking the brownie out. Dust it with some flour.

2. Preheat oven to 150C.

3. In a large mixing bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt).

4. In another bowl, mix the milk + coffee, yogurt, oil and vanilla.

5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Give it a mix till combined well.

6. Pour the batter to the prepared pan. Spread it gently with a spatula.

7. Give the pan a tap on the counter to let any air bubbles escape.

8. Add dollops of peanut butter all over the batter. Do the same with the jam. Using a tooth pick gently swirl it.

9. Transfer to the over and bake for 30-40 min till a  toothpick comes out clean. I baked for 35 min.

10. Take out of the oven and leave it in the pan for an hour.

11. Once cooled, take out of the pan using the parchment paper. Cut into 16 squares.
